As a Housing Retention Specialist at Inspiration Corporation, my main goal is to work closely with currently or formerly homeless Participants in our Permanent Housing Programs to obtain and maintain their housing. I am fairly new to this work, I started at Inspiration Corporation in July! But I feel that my passion for and engagement with this community has been taking shape for many years. I am motivated by an understanding that being housed is a fundamental human right and every other challenge a person is dealing with becomes just a little bit more manageable when they do not have to worry about the issues that come with unstable housing. I feel grateful to be in this position where I get to be a part of that journey with many of people in our programs.
